The U.S. Department of Education is coming to Texas to to continue an investigation into whether the state is illegally keeping students with disabilities out of special education services after learning of the Houston Chronicle articles on special ed services in TX. Federal officials will hold public “listening sessions” with students, parents, advocates and educators in Houston, Dallas, Austin, El Paso and Edinburg next month, the department said. The meetings will take place during the week of Dec. 12.

A Houston Chronicle investigation has found that Texas has deprived thousands of kids of special education services. …”Walker knew the law was on her side. Since 1975, Congress has required public schools in the United States to provide specialized education services to all eligible children with any type of disability. But what she didn’t know is that in Texas, unelected state officials have quietly devised a system that has kept thousands of disabled kids like Roanin out of special education.
